Default Seas full range in 1,5-way

Ive been contemplating whether to post this in "full range" or "multi-way". Since its about full range drivers and only 1,5-way, Ill take my chances here.

Im in the final stages with cabinets for my Seas Exotic F8, only days from completion. This is the recommended 60l sealed enclosure. Other designs will follow, in time.

However, I also have plans on testing the new full range Seas Prestige FA22RCZ. From the specs and recommendations from Seas, this is close to a drop-in replacement for the same enclosures. Im looking forward to testing them against each other.

To the chase:

The cost of the new full range also opens for a 1,5-way construction, something Im anxious about trying. This way I can keep sensitivity up, as I wont need a inductor and resistor for baffle step compensation.

Im thinking about testing two combinations:
1) two FA22RCZ
2) FA22RCZ for BSC and F8 full range.

The plan is one sealed volume for each driver. This will also make direct comparisons easy.

Any thoughts and/or tips on the matter will be highly appreciated.

I forgot to mention that Ive got the 8 ohm version of the Exotic, which is the same as the Prestige.

Im using a Luxman SQ-38u, a 25W tube amp, to drive them. Its only been used for about fourty hours, so both it and the Exotics need some burn-in before I can comment too much on the sound.

The cabinets are still work in progress, still naked MDF. I.e. nothing much to look at right now. Im contemplating new enclosure design, 1,5-way is one of them.
